  • Shell’s Sky scenario is designed to imagine a world that complies with the goals of the Paris climate agreement, managing to hold global warming to “well below” a rise of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels; the world’s consumption of oil would rise through 2025 before starting to decline in the 2030s and fall below current levels in 2040.
  • The company stresses that Sky is only a scenario – a possible future dependent upon many assumptions – not a reality that definitely will be realized. and its sister websites,, and are all owned by John Donovan
